The Columbus Cottonmouths captured their third franchise league title Saturday night in Penscaola, Florida with a 3-1 victory over the Pensacola Ice Flyers. The Snakes were a perfect 6-0 in the playoffs, sweeping each of their three, 3-game series against the Louisiana Ice Gators, Huntsville Havoc and Pensacola Ice Flyers. Goaltender Ian Vigier was named playoff MVP with a 6-0 record, 1.30 GAA and .956 save percentage.
